What's in tom weber's Golf Bag
Last Updated: September 18, 2019
I have been playing golf since I was 11 years old. Grew up in Chicago, played on the high school and college golf teams. Moved to California in 1970. I play a lot of golf, average about 350 rounds a year. The only thing that keeps me off the course is frost. I'll play in rain, wind, fog, heat/cold, etc. I play super early every day because I hate waiting around.
As I age, it has become difficult to accept that I can no longer play to the level I once played too. While I still love the game, I have tended to isolate myself because I am embarrassed by the deterioration of my skill level. However, I am still on a quest to accomplish my long time goal of shooting my age.

Out early not only to beat the heat, but also to get ahead of the course closure due to the 2 day "Windmill Classic". As expected the course was in very nice condition, with green speeds a bit quicker than typical. Green still very receptive. Fairways have great coverage, yet remain "tight" Overall the condition is very good, which means is typical because beginning October 5th, they will be closing the course for about one month to over seed and aerate the greens.
While I appreciate this is a needed to maintain the good conditions, that means we will have over 1000 members vying for just one course with limited tee time availability and shorting daylight.» Close

I always look forward to playing the goat. I can not believe just how much better the course is condition wise from my last time here. Night & Day. And I suspect it will only get better. While the greens roll well, they are still too slow for my taste, but I suspect if they were firm and fast, one would never be able to finish a round of golf there. They are small, undulating and just tough !
As i did not bring any kind of game with me, the course absolutely humbled me. This course can humble you when you play well, so when you struggle, it makes for a brutal day, BUT, despite that, still love playing here and will return again soon. For those who have never played the Goat, don't me put off by the short yardage, this course is all you've be able to handle.» Close

Nice to get back out at Coyote Hills, one of the fun courses to play. Staff is always super friendly and accommodating. Beautiful mild morning. Have to piggyback on Larry's recent reviews. Greens rolled well, fairways soft but since I played the shorter tees, didn't have as much of an affect as normal. Some soft spots, but nothing too severe. Bunkers were better than expected, better than most other courses.
Lots of fun holes here ! Nice visuals ! Not thrilled with the price increase from last year, but the senior rate is still doable.» Close

I've always enjoyed playing Shandin Hills, in part because I tend to be a decent bunker player and it's difficult to get around this course without finding the sand. While most of the bunkers were in poor condition (Flooded and thin ) which is what we have all come to expect since the Covid no rakes permitted policy became the norm. So I was not upset by that because I kind of expected it. However, normally the greens at Shandin Hills are pretty good, but they were the worst I have seen them. Bare spots, irregular surfaces, they really need to be rolled. I understand they will be punching the greens next week, so hopefully that will help?
Fairways were spotty, good good, some needing attention. Same with the tee boxes and rough. Staff was great and since we were out first, no issue with pace of play, walking in about 2 1/2 hours. What's strange is I have played this course many times, always at first light, so conditions should be similar, but I can never remember the freeway being so loud, to the point where it was difficult to hold a conversation with my playing partner from anything more than a few feet away. I can not remember ever having this problem before. I mean you were always aware of the freeway, but it was so loud, it actually was annoying at times ??? Maybe my old age is catching up with me ?
I would give this place several weeks to "heal" before returning. Maybe by then the greens will be back to normal» Close

Despite the fact this course is relatively close to my home, I really don't play here all that often. It isn't that I dislike the course, although conditions have been suspect over the past few years, but rather because I always seem to get stuck behind a lot of back nine play, which greatly discourages me from playing more frequently.
The conditions were consistent with the last review. Course is very wet, way over watered, but given the incredible heat wave we recently experienced, that could justify it? Greens rolled well and accepted shots. fairways, although too wet, were decent. Bunkers were like bunkers everywhere, nearly unplayable.
Staff is always friendly here and accommodating. Reasonable pricing for seniors, so all in all, a positive experience on the links.» Close
